After mountain bikers called for improvements at Bear River Bike Park, the city of Steamboat Springs Parks and Recreation Department decided to use a couple thousand dollars to make some repairs.

Trevyn Newpher is in charge of the project and is relying on city employees and volunteers to help make the park what it once was. Since Monday, the crew has used mounds of dirt to add height and width to the deteriorated jump lines.

Volunteers are invited to help all day Thursday.
